Great for a drink and a nice bite. We had some great dishes and the beers on menu are nice as well. They have a lot of Jopen on draft.

Although their menu looks pretty nice for a simple meal, the execution is less nice. Potatoes are deep-fried, service staff doesn't ask how we would like our steak, vegies are not well cleaned. It's a shame, as the place has a nice atmosphere. Next time we'll just go for a beer at this place, not for food...

Easy to find near the Javastraat section of Amsterdam. Portions are generous and food was tasty. Many choices from the menu to suit different budgets.

Our local favorite for having a simple but good meal. Try the saté or the dish of the day and you will be surprised. Also has a nice terrace. Prices for drinks and food are in line with the atmosphere and the quality.

Nice old place. Beatifull restored. Used to be a Coffeehouse for those who worked in the docks. This part of the harbour was meant for transporting people to the Far East and South America. It was built round 1860 in the Reedlands. The old warehouses are turned into houses. We've booked a 3-way meal. As starters my wife had salmon... More

i've been a couple of times for dinner in this cafe / restaurant during april 2015. The "retrò" atmosphere is relaxing and confortable, the service fast and friendly, even with our big-sized dog, that has immediately received a bowl of fresh water. I've tasted both the "sate ajam" (chicken sate) and the XXL hamburger. Both were delicious and fairly priced.... More

Staff were welcoming and helpful, they even gave us a mini freebee starter! Food was good, the cheese burger is just epic! Ribs were good! Cheese cake is different in a fab way very gingery base and a light top! This looks like a smaller business, they work hard, not perfect but none the less we really enjoyed out visit!

Spare Ribs were average, steak was good, Asparagus soufflé was good, service friendly and prices reasonable. Good atmosphere and large patio. It was just a very short walk from where we were staying which is why we chose this restaurant.
